HELENA — New numbers from the Montana Response COVID-19 tracking map show 185 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of Tuesday morning.

This number may change due to counties reporting final numbers to the state.

The previously reported total Monday afternoon was 177.

At this time, there have been four deaths in Montana due to COVID-19.



Newly confirmed cases:

  • Cascade: 1
  • Deer Lodge: 1
  • Flathead: 2
  • Gallatin: 2
  • Lincoln: 1
  • Madison: 2
  • Park: 1
  • Silver Bow: 1
  • Yellowstone: 2

Total confirmed cases (by county):

  • Gallatin County - 69
  • Yellowstone County - 28
  • Missoula County - 12
  • Silver Bow County - 11
  • Lewis and Clark County - 11
  • Flathead County - 11
  • Cascade County - 8
  • Madison County - 6
  • Toole County - 6
  • Lincoln County - 5
  • Park County - 3
  • Deer Lodge County - 3
  • Broadwater County - 3
  • Lake County - 3
  • Jefferson County - 2
  • Ravalli County - 1
  • Meagher County - 1
  • Roosevelt County - 1
  • Hill County - 1 Cases


Public health officials know that the number of cases is likely substantially higher than the number of confirmed cases. As of Monday afternoon, the public health laboratory in Helena has completed 4,411 tests.

The "recovery rate" for Montana has not yet been determined, as COVID-19 is still relatively new in our state and there is not enough data to calculate an accurate rate at this point.

Montana is currently under a "stay at home" order due to the coronavirus pandemic.
